Joan was a dynamic and progressive woman who finished her teaching degree after raising 4 children. She taught successfully and passionately in the Hilton School District for close to 30 years. Joan enjoyed golfing, was a voracious reader, and loved socializing. Joan’s main focus was on her husband, children and grandchildren. Always a towering presence with a ready laugh at family gatherings, she will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.
Joan will have a private Catholic ceremony and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date when it’s safe to gather.
